- Pop (Fam): Popularity among users familiar with the song. Scores are based on a scale of 1-5 (1 = dislike a lot, 5 = like a lot)
- Fam%: The percentage of respondents who recognized the song
- Burn% (Fam): The percentage of respondents familiar with the song who are tired of hearing it
RateTheMusic (RTM) Internet-based music research is a leading indicator of what will eventually be shown by traditional callout research.
Typical RTM survey respondents are heavy radio listeners and active music consumers, passionate about music, whatever their favorite format/type of music. These music raters are the "leading edge" of the audience for all formats/types of music.
Thus, Familiarity will be seen sooner than possible for callout (weeks before a song has accumulated enough plays to be considered for testing via callout), and Burn will develop sooner as well. For these reasons, RTM recommends that, whenever possible, our Internet-based results be used in conjunction with traditional callout research, to balance the "leading edge" results with those of the "mass audience."
Each week, RTM tests the top 30 current songs in each format (top 20 songs for AC) according to Mediabase's most recent airplay charts. Participants are screened via the Internet. RateTheMusic results are not meant to replace callout research and are intended to show opinions of participants on the Internet only.
